watching r.t. and our weekly interview welcome to the program carrie just now this week saw nato officially announce the end of its aerial campaign in libya starting from next month the country's interim leadership will take control of all security responsibilities also tasked with me building the country as well as preventing gadhafi era military stockpiles falling into the wrong hands a tall order a nation flooded with weapons and sonali reports. the war is over but the weapons are fully loaded. human rights watch has expressed grave concern about leftover are in libya their number one fear warehouses thought to hold ground to air missiles which could in the wrong hands take down passenger aircraft it's through mates or our nato allies in the region which these weapons have been flooding libya and also libya is quite
3:02 am
a world country anyway the population has has quite a lot of light weapons in its possession and those light weapons are becoming a heavy burden on the national transitional council now relying on an army of former rebels for security we try to control the bins i would check if there is somebody who has worked and we ask him if he has authorization for this we are not. going. to point have been set up across tripoli to check that those carrying weapons have proper documentation and those who do have the paperwork are being called on by the national transition committee to return their arms the question now is what if they don't and what does that mean up for pulse picked up the libya and its stability and now as you can see is being secured here everything is under control and the only would think that we will make some mechanism how to give weapons could we see something very different i asked this
3:03 am
head commander what the plan is to disarm the population and. i swear i don't know if you do. you know that assure us that we have some of the cdrom and when the. right and a makeshift arms collection center that covers one neighborhood in the capital we are shown this. to these other weapons people brought to me today not many. walk down one block in tripoli and you'll see twice as many firearms. so you know how many weapons there are in libya i can dislike them so we've been sitting here i think everybody have. something the flood of arms in the country could spell disaster ahead in the vacuum after gadhafi impulse to revolt chaos as groups find out vicious battles from power. what you have now in
3:04 am
libya in schools or armed factions who have no respect for each other and who have no respect from a true actually i believe opportunistically used may to achieve some aims and nato has been foolish enough to go along with this so i think what we're going to see now is a intensification of the civil war between increasingly the factions were overthrown by the gadhafi regime with many libyans not yet ready to say a farewell to arms the empty sea which could only be good daffyd with nato help is now asking the alliance to continue its mission a vivid indication of just how unstable the country is and he's now a r t tripoli. now that nato is wrapping up in libya but organizations chief describe your peroration is one of the most successful in the advances history but one eyewitness to the nato bombing in libya only seen says it was death and

a vision to his country. they used every possible thing to do to make this so-called revolution successful they used gunships. helicopters they used fighter is all sorts of weapons that they had this was so they can. make this successful kill so many people through to succeed in this operation which i i don't think it's a success because if it was a success really he would have been so happy about it i doubt that very much there's a big divide in libya there is a huge gap now between libyans. i mean parts partially because of interference partially because of let's be
3:06 am
honest and say partially because of gadhafi. but but the way they killed gadhafi the way they treated him the way they bombed my city you. have a lot of civilians inside it who were killed as well i mean this just. generates anger and generates revenge. which which is in the future will be the fuel of another war in libya which i think it will be sooner or later. but it's thought colonel gadhafi is most influential son saif al islam that's fair to him is there apparently looking to hang themselves over the international criminal court he's reportedly used a spokesperson to make contact with the hague to deny charges of crimes against humanity some experts believe that with google his son on trial is the last thing some western leaders want to see. i bet it explains. to some

market there for he was a man too much at secrets which will supposedly be buried with him i think that there were tremendous sighs of relief all over capitol also in western europe this is somebody who cut all sorts of deals with the french the british and the italians and to some extent the americans as well i think they did not want him put on trial for any reason and i am not misled is that surprised that he was captured alive if you really quickly ended up there could have easily turn from diplomatic a tsar was spectacular hugs handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him back he's now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat is far from buried could go on for years more to his group three seasons with him but the. deal with him is constant who goes with it wish all
